    Surgery turns some good finds- 3 platinum 1 gold and 17 silver rings

    Well I was told I had to have surgery on my foot and that the military was sending me to Okinawa Japan for the operation . I decided to take a couple of extra days and go down early to hit the beaches. My wife of course just shook her head. She wasn't shaking it for long as we got on the beaches and started hitting rings and coins every couple of minutes. All together we found 3 Platinum rings, 1 22K gold ring, 17 silver rings, 4 silver pendents, 1 silver chain, 1 Gucci silver men's Bracelet, a silver woman's bangle bracelet, 9 trash rings 36,800 in Japanese yen ($385.00US) and 16.43 in US clad. I tried to take pictures of them all but did not take individual pictures. The first picture is everything I found in my storage case, believe me it was empty when I started. Hope you enjoy the pixes. By the way my surgery went well

    They are definitely not cheapskates over there in good ol' Japan. That made a heap of expensive goodies But still the main thing is that your surgery went well.

    Way to go, Bob. You definately scored heavy......should have made the trip to the dr. a little less painful.
    Waiting for one of us to get across the big lake so we can do some hunting together.

    OMG! Obviously MD'ing isnt very big in Japan.... I think you must have a record there. Thanks for sharing, and hope the foot is all better!

    Great haul!!!

    I was stationed on Okinawa in the late 60's at Kadena airbase..... I am sure it has changed a lot since then... I use to hunt the waters right off Kadena for old WW-II artifacts....

    I was stationed there in about 1973 at the tender age of 2.

    Very nice score!
